Yields: 4 servings


  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 c. low-sodium chicken broth


  1. In a small bowl, combine spices. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

  3. Turn off Instant Pot and add broth to pot. Use a wooden spoon to scrape and deglaze the bottom of the pot.
  4. Place trivet in pot and arrange chicken on top. Lock lid and set to Pressure Cook on high for 5 minutes.
  5. Follow the manufacturer’s guide for quick release, making sure to wait until the cycle is complete before unlocking and removing the lid.
  6. Serve chicken with broth spooned over top. Serve over rice, pasta, a bed of greens, quinoa, or mashed cauliflower or potatoes
